The Hell Screens
“Written with precise elegance, and populated by ghosts, mediums, and criminals, Alvin Lu’s The Hell Screens is surrealist noir set in a shadow version of Taipei that exposes the spirits and superstitions of Taiwan’s complex past lurking beneath its modern cityscapes. Alvin Lu has a singular imagination accompanied by the gift of enviably gorgeous prose.”
—Shawna Yang Ryan, author of Green Island
“A hypnotic venture into the uncertain reality of liminal existences. Sophisticated readers will relish Lu’s ambitious debut.”
